CHESTERFIELD was a Poverty Row studio that was active from 1925 to '36, when it was merged into newly-created REPUBLIC Pictures. INVINCIBLE's story is similar: a small indie outfit from '32 to '36, they were ultimately absorbed by REPUBLIC.
THE DARK HOUR - An elderly millionaire who was being blackmailed is found murdered. A long suspects list includes members of his own family. Before this programmer's over, two are dead and two cops work to solve the related cases. Directed by Charles Lamont, later of Abbott & Costello and Ma & Pa Kettle fame.
GREEN EYES - A millionaire is murdered at his own costume party. The victim's granddaughter, who had been with him just before the crime, leaves the mansion with her boyfriend, but not before they cut phone wires and sabotage the other guests' autos. They're pulled over by cops and returned to the scene, where a investigation is under way. Both are arrested for murder but subsequent events and evidence just may clear them.
MIDNIGHT LADY - Another murder mystery where the person charged for homicide, in this case a girl from a rich family, may not be the actual perpetrator. A central character in this late Prohibition Era film operates a speakeasy.
THE QUITTER - Newspaper owner doesn't return from WWI, so his wife runs the paper while trying to raise two sons. As an adult, one of her boys attempts to transform the family business from a crusader for the downtrodden to a supporter of the wealthy. Then comes news that his dad may be living in France under an alias. Cast includes an original (silent era) Little Rascal, Mary Kornman.
